Liqen and Nantu Shipwrecked in Equador: A Girl, The Ocean and Her Hair

Street Artists Liqen and Nantu just finished this wall in Tosunpa, Equador on the side of a small storefront. Using primarily black paint and paint brushes, the two create a reposed nymph looking skyward, her head surrounded by rolling waves, a somewhat tumultuous adventure on the high seas with dolphins, a whale, and a troubled vessel. For a necklace she wears a short string of small heads. Liquen says it is “an aperitif; an abstract idea about the ocean, a female, and the shipwreck in her hair.”
